The shamrock, a three-leaf clover, has been associated with Ireland for centuries. It was called the “seamroy” and was a plant that signaled the beginning of spring. According to legend, St. Patrick used the plant as a visual guide when explaining the Holy Trinity. By the 17th century, the shamrock had become a symbol of emerging Irish nationalism.
